ASSAM FISH RECIPE

 

In Asia, we are blessed with lots of fragrant herbs to make Assam curry, which also goes very well with snapper. In this recipe, we highly recommend using red snapper, golden snapper or batang. It can also be done with various types of fish heads.

Prep time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 25 mins

Servings: 2-4, depending on the number of other dishes

Ingredients:

1 fish head or 2-3 fish steaks

2 stalks of lemon grass

2 stalks of ginger flower, with stalks sliced

3 shallots, finely sliced

2 garlic cloves, finely sliced

1 tablespoon of balachan (shrimp paste)

fish curry mix (you can get this from the supermarket or at the wet market)

4 lady's fingers

1 tomato (cut into wedges)

3 sprigs of mint leaves

oil

Directions:

1. Pound the balachan with a mortar and pestle. Fry the balachan until fragrant.

3. Add the balachan, lemongrass, garlic, tomatoes and lady's fingers.
4. Add 2 cups of water.

not bad

Curry Fish Head

The snapper fish head is fresh and the curry sauce is really good. Do you sell the curry sauce separately? Or perhaps packaged it with the fish tail?

Good baby food

The mercury content in sardines is one of the lowest, making it an ideal fish for babies. I puree the fish. My baby likes it a lot. Thank you Dish The Fish for selling wild sardines. Hope it will be back in stock soon.
